RAW TEXT[edit]

> Your name:Larry R. Heather > > Political party:Christian Heritage Party Of Canada > > Riding:Electoral District of Calgary Southwest > > New candidates: Why are you running for political office, why at the > federal level, why this party, and why in this riding? I am running for the Christian Heritage Party for Calgary Southwestbecause it is the only Federal Party that is committed to the Supremacy of God's ethical laws in the crafting of federal administration and legislation.Toflavour the ballot with this option for the voters is an imperative for me personally. It is my highest act of citizenship to offer my constituents the option ofreturning to the founding principles of our nation's Christian Heritage, the only way that Canada can continue to survive as the nations we have known in the past.Of course, these sort of decisions areprimarily made at the federal leveland that is where my focus is. The Calgary Southwest electoral district is critical to contrast our approach to that of the Conservative Party Prime Minister, Stephen Harper. This has been my home riding since 1963 and I, unlike the Prime Minister, actually make a residence in the riding. > > New candidates: Previous to this campaign, have you been politically > involved? How will you apply your previous work/volunteer/life > experience to serving your constituents? > This is myseventh federal campaign for member of Parliament,two as an independant, and five as a Christian Heritage Party Candidate. Six of the runs were in Calgary Southwest, one in Calgary West.I have also run for public school board and MLA for the Alberta provincial elections in the past, both as an independant and for the Alberta Social Credit Party. I have participated in a number of community and Christian ministry positions, both in leadership, and on the member volunteer level. I have a wide base of reading and research into various issues affecting the welfare of citizens. I am always looking towards learning new approaches and solutions that deal with reality and the world we truly must live in.

I believe the management of the economy under ethical free enterprise is the primary concern of the voters

in Calgary Southwest. Also troubling tomany is the proper management of health care, and general respect for the value of innocent human life under the barrage of a compromised justice system. The disrepect shown to the pre-born and the traditional definition of marriage, has many wondering whether the decision makershave not abandoned all sense of moral rationality.

> > Is there any misconceptions about you, your leader, or your party and platform? Any examination of the full policy of the Christian Heritage Party will show a complete response of policy to the major areas of federal responsibility. Because we talk about critical issues that no other party will mention, it is wrongly perceived that we are strumming a one string banjo. This is not true, and exactly the reason why our Party Leader, Ron Gray - should be included in the national leaders television debates - where the full range of issues will not be censored out.

The blog and facebook for me, are just in their beginnings, but I see from the start, the willingness of people to see their input put on public sites where their opinion and allegiances can be made known is evident. The door to door brochure is still the mainstay sourcefor most, the doorknocking and personal face to face encounter the most effective as time allows. But electronic interaction is the way most active people will have a chance for direct interaction with the Candidate in this busy day and age.

Ah, yes. You did as I intended. Too much copy-pasting my side. :) Cheers, Van der Hoorn (talk) 11:43, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
